Just a modified street car. Nothing special.
What a nice race car. Is it set up for road racing or circle track. I'm a big fan of all type of racing. I think building them is my biggest niche. All my racing experience is on dirt track and off road.
I'm too old now but that is where my heart is.

Apparently, my "WIFE" is buying a winch for the H2 this past weekend with the heavy Ice storm we were out clearing trees in our driveway and public roads with me cutting them and her pulling them back with the H2. Out of the blue ...her words " why don't you have one of those pulling things on the front of the h2 like the land cruiser". I just said it is on the list but not a priority well she says that will be your Valentine's day present then. Guess she had fun

Last thing is the quick release brackets from Ironman 4x4 for my awning from the same company. I also just ordered a Klymit 0 degree sleeping bag. Next up is a buddy heater and hopefully a portable power source for our Iceco fridge.

Thanks Jim, it was setup for regular race track racing. I prefer to go fast, then in circles lol. I have since sold my race car. Blew the engine twice and just called it a day and cut my losses.

The most recent purchase was a set of led headlights for my Xj. Kind of a b-day gift to myself. Our stock headlights are nothing to write home about. Made sure they were Dot approved and that the low beam was the bulb type that can be dialed in so they won't blind on coming traffic.

Really looking forward to this year. We have a few overland style trips planned and of course the usual day trips. So trying to get some things dialed in, it will be here before you know it.

View attachment 81981 just ordered a Rockpals 300watt portable battery generator.
How is your rockpal holding up? I can not find much in the way of review3s on this brand, only goal zero and jackery. The rockpals are on sale right now. Also, do you find that the 300 is sufficient? I run my frig off the jeep battery, so would really only be using it for lighting, phones, laptop type stuff. Thanks for any input. Joel

My wife did well for my birthday this week and loaded me up with several of my wishlist items for my outings:
1. Buddy Heater
2. Baldr 330 power station
3. Blueridge's attic net for my Jeep
4. Gpca Grip Pro handles for my Jeep
5. Nemo Stargaze chair

And she told me to get out of the house and go camping this weekend. No kids, just me, so time to relax, try out my gear and do a little exploring.

I need to get a new satellite messenger having not renewed my spot. I am researching between the Garmin Inreach, Zoleo or the Garmin Montana 700i which has the Inreach built in. Maybe a new easy to setup tent as well.

I have a Garmin Inreach Mini but that Montana 700i is really nice.

Last thing I bought for the Jeep was Roam Adventure Co 52L and 105L storage cases. Also bought an antenna and mounting materials for my GMRS radio. now I just need it to warm up a little so I can get out to the car part and get the radio installed.

When the power went out thus the wood pellet stove was out for 6 days it game an excuse to finally purchase a Battery Bank, sadly it did not have enough capacity to power my wood pellet stove I was hoping for.

That is when the little 900w, $99 harbor freight generator comes in handy. For less than $300 you can have a 3500w generator. Neither is fancy but they work for what they are meant for, emergencies. Because I live in a rural area, it is necessary for me to be prepared for outages which would also effect my water supply. I dont think living in the city is any guarantee of better utility services any longer. The utility companies are not investing in updates because of cooperate structures bleeding off too much money to put in the ceo's pockets. They dont care about you anymore. Rely on yourself for your own security sake !
